Special Education Panel Looks for Members

The Community Advisory Committee for Special Education (CAC) is currently looking for volunteers to fill existing vacancies.

The CAC is a group of volunteers including parents of students with exceptional needs, other parents, school district personnel, adults and students with disabilities, representatives of agencies and organizations and individuals concerned with the needs of individuals with exceptional needs. Members are appointed by the Board of Education.

The CAC is a place where you can learn about special education, meet other individuals who are concerned about the needs of exceptional children and assist the school district to improve special education services and programs. Everyone is invited to join us for our public meetings. Our meetings are held monthly during the traditional school year. When you come to a CAC meeting, you can also share your ideas and concerns, ask questions, ask for assistance, etc.

In addition to our monthly meetings, the CAC also provides information through our newsletter, parent trainings, our website and informational presentations.
The committee advises the School Board about issues related to special education, provides training and information for parents and works collaboratively with the school district to improve outcomes for students with exceptional needs.

Interested parents and community members are invited to review the criteria for membership at  and attend an upcoming meeting. For additional information about the CAC, please contact
